Get involved

UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crises, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. As an Armenia citizen, you are a crucial part of this process – UNDP is a potential partner to you too! We need your ideas, your actions, and your activism. Here’s how you can get involved:

 

Kolba is a social venture incubator. It is a space for identifying social challenges, testing ideas and nurturing ventures. It is also a community of troublemakers, thinkers and fixers. We collaborate to address big social challenges. We believe in getting stuff done through networks of talented citizens rather than organizational hierarchies of people telling one another what to do. No matter your age or identity, if you have an idea for improving life in Armenia, join us…

 

The GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP) is a global environmental initiative, but has been operational in Armenia since 2008. SGP aims to deliver environmental solutions to areas such as:

 

·         Biodiversity conservation

·         Climate change mitigation

·         Prevention of land degradation

·         Elimination of persistent organic pollutants through community-based approaches.

Do you have a project or an idea for a project that tackles one of these issues? If so, then apply! SGP Armenia accepts applications from registered national NGOs without foreign founders all year round and provides grants up to the value of US$50,000.

Would like to be exposed to an environment of global expertise? Perhaps you want to complement your academic study with some hands-on experience of Armenia’s defining development challenges? Or maybe you’d like to be part of a high quality professional team?

If this sounds interesting than an internship with UNDP is for you! Internships with UNDP Armenia offer a small group of outstanding graduate-level students the opportunity to acquire direct exposure to UNDP's work.

We offer four to six month unpaid positions across all of our programmes. Find out more and apply here
